Jaunt /jônt/: Noun: a short excursion or journey for pleasure.
The White Mountain Jaunt will offer an exciting 4-day adventure for teens of all ages, while also serving as an excellent introduction to backpacking and wilderness camping for those looking for just a taste of what it’s like! We will spend our time trekking through some of New Hampshire’s remote wilderness, exploring old growth forest, climbing rugged peaks, and cooling off in mountain streams.
We will use the White Mountain National Forest Basin Campground as our home base and adventure to a variety of day-long expeditions. Teens will learn how to set up and break down low-impact wilderness campsites, cook meals over open fires, and navigate using maps and the natural features of the land.
